Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 28/02/2024)

At the time of writing, Netflix has yet to renew House of Ninjas for a second season.

The series has gotten off to a successful start on the platform, amassing 8.7 million views worldwide in its first two weeks.

Week 1 saw the Japanese original debut with 4.2 million views. Week 2 has seen a slight but healthy increase of 4.5 million views.  This equates to 71.5 million hours viewed. Compared to other Japanese titles, it’s an outstanding couple of weeks for House of Ninjas. Whether or not this will be enough to receive a renewal remains to be seen.

What can you expect from a second season of House of Ninjas?

With Gaku revealed to be alive, instead of relief for the Tawara Clan, it turns to heartbreak as Gaku has turned against the family and has sided with the enemy. Gaku’s reasons for swapping sides is due to his anger at the Tawaras for their hand in the deaths of innocents and for being used as political pawns.

By taking over as the leader of the Fūma Kotarō, Gaku has wielded the clan’s power decisively by using his new agents to seize power from the government and take control of it and the Bureau of Ninja Management.

With state resources to hand and a catalog of corrupt politicians, state officials, military personnel, and the police, not to mention access to other Ninja clans, Gaku’s leverage is frightening.

Despite being a traitor, Gaku is still family. But is Gaku redeemable? Haru had the chance to stop Gaku, but ultimately, his mercy not only led to his brother’s capture by the Fūma clan in the first place but also led his brother to seize an unfathomable amount of power for the Fuma clan. Will Haru be left with no choice but to take down Gaku for good and break his no-kill policy?

When could we see a second season of House of Ninjas on Netflix?

If we assume House of Ninjas will be renewed for a second season, when the series is renewed, it will make the largest impact on the release of season 2.

Judging from the first season’s production, the turnaround for a second season could be faster than expected. Filming for the first season reportedly began on September 15th, 2023, and ended on January 20th, 2024. Post-production was also extremely fast.

This means we could see a second season on Netflix sometime within the following year. However, this relies heavily on renewal and production starting within 12 months.
